The intent of this study is to explore the potential of 3D printing female shoes and try to change the manufacturing procedure. High-heel is the target because of the marketing value and the challenge for ergonomics. Therefore, problems of standing balance, comfort and fitness are investigated. This study starts from observation of traditional manufacture and the way shoes are assembled in order to increase the value of innovation. The design and producing procedure would be presented, and participants are also asked to do a pilot study for understanding the preliminary results.
